Income While Waiting For SS Disabillity To Kick In.

Income While Waiting For SS Disabillity To Kick In.

We live in NJ. My husband has received conformation that he will be receiving SS disability, but has to wait 6 month before the first check will arrive. Does anyone know of any other benefits that he can apply for to help pay the bills these 6 month while he waits ?

If he is a veteran,call the VA or go to the nearest VA and talk to a service officer. If he is a Vietnam veteran, he needs to apply for benefits if he has PARKINSONS.

I have been looking into government grants. which we are entitled to. You also can hire a SSI lawyer. They can assist you in filing for the back pay. because it takes 6 months from the day he is awarded SSI. I wish I would have done this
